Holiday Rental House
'Rosemoyne' - An Historic,16th century, mountain retreat built in 1590 for the Monks on holidays. This is where your dreams begin. I rent this 16th Century stone house from the owner living in London and manage it for him as a holiday rental. It enjoys a commanding position at about 650m above sea level in the village of Vico Pancellorum, 45 minutes from the walled city of Lucca. It has breathtaking views over the Lima Valley, taking in several other medieval villages and the 11th Century Lucchio Castle. Fully renovated to the highest standard, centrally heated and complete with every convenience.

Bagni di Lucca is 20 mins away for all your provisions, many restaurants and local services. Since the first century BC, Bagni di Lucca has been widely known for the beneficial effects of its thermal water, ideal for the care and nourishment of the skin and the relaxation and purification of the body. The Thermal Spa is famous for its steam baths housed within two natural caves and the Wellbeing Centre offering mud baths, massages and other treatments to nourish & revitalise the mind & body. Ristorante Buca di Baldabo in Vico Pancellorum is a favourite with locals and unsuspecting visitors. The food is traditional and sensational, in true Italian style, it is the food, the staff and friends that are all important for a great night out. We shared a platter of tagliatelle with wild boar sauce, followed by a sharedplatter of Ravioli filled with sweet pumpkin, followed by Boar Antiqua (boar ribs cooked in the old method). Then we managed to back up for fig and walnut tart, tiramisu or apple tart with custard. All absolutely delicious. Thank you smiling Luisa for waiting on us and imbuing our evening with local knowledge. More
